IMHO the kit is pricey, plus add installation $$. Just sell the V7 or keep in stock form and for Scrambler purposes buy the Ducati Scrambler- I highly recommend it!

I love the look of it. Looks like a nice little package. I prefer the old school Scrambler with the high pipe look to the Ducati. Besides, who has the budget for the Ducati jeans, Ducati sneakers, Ducati man purse, etc, etc.

The 796 is quiet, no bag of nails on that engine! Tried to get my wife interested in these two, but she wants the FZ-07. At least she looked.

As noted, the Scrambler has a wet clutch => no nasty rattle. Ducati started phasing out the dry clutch, I dunno, maybe ten years ago??? The superbikes don't even have dry clutches anymore.

It's the dry clutch. Not all of the Ducatis have a dry clutch, and I don't think there is a Ducati in the current (model year 2015) line up with a dry clutch. The owners of Ducatis with a dry clutch are very proud of the sound of their "bag of nails". That dry clutch sound only happens when the motor is at idle, by the way.

I agree on the whole Ducati, fashionista hipster thing. It's aweful and annoying. I cover how much I hate Ducati's marketing campaign here.

Now back on track. I'm a former Guzzi Griso owner. For the record, I love Guzzi bikes, and currently consider replacing my Victory with a California 1400. All that considered, the V7, umm well...why spend the extra couple thousand on 45HP bike that has very little capability. Yes, it does look great. But if your going for looks, so does the triumph.

If you want a Scrambler that can perform- save your $$$ on the kit and get a Ducati Scrambler. For the record- you can get HIGH PIPES with the Ducati as well. That's my two cents.

The look of your bike has to touch your soul imo otherwise we'd all be riding the same thing. If the Guzzi captures your soul by all means listen to it. Only you can answer that.

Trust me, Im not the man. Just a regular guy. Besides the stock seat, the only other thing I hate about the DUC SCRAMBLER is the CHEESY advert! "Land of Joy"--- very lame lol
